Accelerated Reader (AR) is a computer program that helps teachers manage and monitor children’s independent reading. Every child is given a book within their reading level and reads at their own pace. When they have finished the book, children are invited to take a short online quiz, to check that they have understood the book. The scheme is designed to engage and motivate children to read as they build up points and earn rewards. Children’s reading levels are regularly reviewed to ensure that children continued to be challenged and engaged. You can follow your child’s progress using Renaissance Home Connect
Please encourage your child to read every day and talk about the books they are reading. Children do not have to read AR books only. Children should read books that they are interested in and motivate them! Other books can be read alongside their AR book. To check which books are covered by AR go to http://www.arbookfind.co.uk.
